Kicker Andre Heidari has been scratched from the USC Trojans' starting lineup. The Trojans' senior kicker was unable to go after a groin injury earlier in the week caused too much pain.
That leaves the kicking duty to either redshirt sophomore Alex Wood or blueshirt sophomore Matt Boermeester. With the Trojans unlikely to want to burn Boermeester's redshirt, it will likely be Alex Wood taking any kicks tonight.
But will the Trojans eschew any kicking opportunities to go for it on fourth down if possible? That's still too be determined.
